Red Sox minor lines: Matt Barnes sets trend on bad day

Matt Barnes had a disaster outing in Portland, setting the trend on a bad day for Boston's farmhands.


Pawtucket W 5-2 (In 11)

Box Score

Brock Holt: 0-3, K
Jose Iglesias: 1-4, BB, SB
Ryan Lavarnway: 1-5, K
Bryce Brentz: 0-4, BB, K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4

Portland L 5-6 (In 10)

Box Score

Travis Shaw: 1-5, 2B, K
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-4, 3 K
Christian Vazquez: 1-4

Matt Barnes: 2.1 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 K
Keith Couch: 4.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

On a day with few positives, Matt Barnes led the pack with this awful day. That's seven runs allowed now with just ten outs recorded for Boston's top pitching prospect. He's going to have to shake off these last couple games, because Double-A is a tough enough jump to make even without confidence issues.

Salem W 7-6

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 2-5, 2B, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 1-3, 2B, 2 BB, K
Keury De La Cruz: 1-5, 2B, K, A
Brandon Jacobs: 1-3, 2B, BB, K, CS
David Renfroe: 2-3, BB, K
Henry Ramos: 1-4, K
Blake Swihart: 1-2

Mike Augliera: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 1 K

The bright spot of the farm system yesterday, at least offensively speaking. Marrero and Coyle are marking for one heck of a productive infield down in Salem.

Greenville L 0-4

Box Score

Jose Vinicio: 0-3, 2 K
Cody Koback: 0-3, BB, K

Cody Kukuk: 4 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
